Intro to Firestop: A Life Safety Issue

July 8 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Intro to Firestop: A Life Safety Issue


This course explains the need for firestop and provides an overview of how the model building codes are addressing the issue. Attendees should understand what firestopping is and why it’s needed, know the applicable code requirements related to firestop, and understand firestop system testing and listing for penetrations, joints and perimeter fire barrier. There will also be
discussion about how firestopping fits into the specification, design and construction process. Participants will also gain an understanding of firestopping best practices, available resources and firestopping innovations for various applications.

This introduction to fire stop will be the first part of certification for fire stop installation. Complete certification will depend on trade and application, but those will be provided free to the members with a second follow-up training at each company’s  request. There is no cost for this.
